Yep, no more iron lungs

Why are some people so damn stupid? No, we don’t have “iron lungs” anymore. But it’s not because vaccines vanquished polio. It’s because they now just call them “ventilators.” News flash! ALL HOSPITALS HAVE THEM. It’s called technological advancement. Duh!

  1. Good evening!
    I just wanted to ask for more information on this, because I figured the difference between respirators and iron lungs was wether the ventilation happend via negative or positive pressure, the former being more physiological? So iron lungs were better for the lungs in long term? Can you please correct me on that?
